    That could have come from many different chickens. It's light brown right? There's too many options to just guess.. [​IMG]

    Hard to tell from the pics. What type of chickens do you have? We get speckled ones like that every so often out of each of our hens. A lot of times you can actually just scrub that off.

    Looks just like my heritage turkey eggs (BRs). But turkeys take 28 days, not 21, to hatch.

    It is too small to be a Turkey Egg, mine were 2 1/2 times the size of a standard chicken egg.

    Do you even know if it's from a purebred chicken? In my experience speckled eggs are more often from mutts and then it could be just about anything.
